This year for Platinum Dance Nationals, we stayed with several other dance families at the Sheraton Panama City Golf & Beach Resort. This place has an amazing boardwalk/dock and a private beach, which offered some great photographic opportunities!
The dance company stopped by to perform.
This year Chase and I traveled up to Florence, Wisconsin with Devin and Walt.
At the time of this post, we subscribe to Spectrum’s Ultimate Internet Package (300/10 Mbps). This package costs a bit extra but offers 3x the bandwidth vs the 100 Mbps base package.

Chase starts the 9th grade at Enterprise High School this fall. It’s hard to believe that he’s going to graduate in 2023!

This was my second WordCamp (of any kind), the first being WordCamp San Francisco just a few weeks ago. I wanted to list out the key differences between camps:
Most of you know we just moved. I was very happy with Charter in Montgomery. We had 3 brand-new HD-DVRs each with 1TB drives, 30/4Mbps un-throttled Internet that would burst to over 60Mbps, plus over 100 HD channels (all with excellent picture quality). Best of all, I didn’t pay any silly fees. I paid for theContinue reading “Yup, I think it’s time to ditch cable. Buh Bye Time Warner.”
In January 2010, I started as Chief Engineer at Bluewater Broadcasting. The new job required me to move to Montgomery, Alabama (about 2 hours from my son Chase). It’s been a very difficult 3 years, 5 months, and 19 days – not only for me but Chase as well.
